Switch Identification

Can anyone tell me what switch is missing in this panel? It is right inside the door on a 2006 Holiday Rambler 40PLQ. I tried googling for picture, but just cannot find what I need.

If anyone has a good source for an entire panel, that would be great because as you can see this one is broken.
Thanks!

Those are Carling brand switches. They come in many designs and features. The switch face has a lever that fits in the white hole to move the actual switch, which is waterproof BTW. They were originally designed for use on boats.
There is a Carling tool to remove the face. I've also found these switches and regular at supply stores, including the removal tool.

As a rough guess, I might suggest it could be the switch for the outside steps. That switch was located in that area on an earlier Ambassador we had, but just a guess. You can put a small screwdriver or other small round probe in there and move the switch back and forth to see what it may affect. Hope this may help, Happy trails Bert

If not the Kwickee outside steps it might be the step cover

My guess is electric steps and/or step light or master storage bay light switch.

If it is the step cover, then you will need the air system pumped up (run engine) and you should not stand in the entry step well area.

Although my 08 Camelot has a different number of switches, I thought I would let you see what are some of the different switches used by the front door.

Maybe others would also post a picture of their switch layout.

If not a step switch, maybe bay light switch. Are there switches on the passengerís console also. Monaco seems to mount switches at both top of console at random between models, or years.

As for the plastics surrounding the switches.

I cut a piece of aluminum and covered it with vinyl. You can get tons of different designs and reorder your switches to something that makes sense to you.

Your hole cutting does not have to be precise as you can get a "gang" holder for four switches that allows you to insert the main plastic piece and then the switches for a very clean appearance.

Getting the connectors off the switches can be quite a challenge but once you do add a bit of lube before installing them again.

You can get just the rocker piece for those switches and have them labeled any way you desire.

The switches along the driver's arm rest were laid out in a completely incoherent pattern on mine and when rebuilding it do to the plastic giving out they found a much better layout in addition to replacing the wierd cup holder that would not fit any ordinary cup.

Check the "dash area" file for some before and after, and then some more after changes.

Here are some files on the switches and suppliers. Ottraww was a great source and a bit easier to understand when ordering. The switch functions can be a bit baffeling especially lighted ones.

Glad to server sir!

All of my plastics in the cockpit are now 1/8" aluminum covered in the fiber optic vinyl.

My AC vent blew cold air on my knees so while moving the dash gauges around I moved the AC vents as well.

The radio stack was modified several times with radios that blew up and the camera monitor was below eye level so pretty useless. Taking it completely out of the stack and mounting it on a Ram mount puts it right in the normal scan area of the mirrors so is very useful now.

The leveling pad was mounted at a 90 degree angle so I always had to think about it when leveling manually. It is now turned properly.

The aluminum is easy to cut with ordinary shop tools.

In my 2005 Camelot that would be the STEP switch. Two weeks ago I replaced mine. Got it and the rocker plate from Spemco.com. the rocker did not say STEP on it though. With shipping it was less than $15.00. just pull the switch panel and you can see how the switch comes out.

You can get custom labeling for many switches.

The switch for my macerator shows a person with a gas mask on.
